It’s nice and simple. Our customers place their order via the FastEat app, you get a notification in our driver app, telling you which store to collect the order from, and where to deliver to.
Once you've delivered your order you confirm this in our app and wait for the next one to be assigned to you.
You may be picking up a McDonalds or KFC order and then shopping at Aldi or Homebargains the next.
Anyone can sign up to work for FastEat. It’s a simple process to apply, get approved, and start bringing people the things they love.

As a self-employed delivery driver, you’re responsible for providing and maintaining your own equipment including: • A roadworthy car, registered and correctly insured. You’ll also need a full driving licence. • Something to wear ‒ while you can wear what you want, it’s very important you provide an excellent impression to customers and restaurants alike. We’d like you to dress neatly and not wear clothing which contain words/slogans which might offend. • Something compatible with our driver app ‒ either ‘iOS’ or ‘Android’ mobile phone, a charger so your battery doesn’t run flat and a data plan. • We will send you a pre-paid payment card • Before you commence deliveries, you will need a commercial-grade 12V heated takeaway food carry bag. FASTEAT can provide you one. We need to take an equipment deposit of £45. This will be returned on leaving the company and handing back the equipment in good working order. See below for payment link.

As a self-employed driver, you are responsible for your own vehicle costs including fuel.
It is illegal to drive without valid insurance and you could receive a penalty ranging from a fine to disqualification from driving. Additionally, were you to be involved in an incident whilst not adequately insured, your insurance company would not cover the costs incurred.
Our dispatch app uses GPS to assign drivers to the orders closest to them. This keeps your mileage down and ensures we provide a fast and reliable service.
